Apart from a couple of mentions, this seemingly relevant tool hasn't received any love yet here at TPFC -- since it has a .NET (2.0) dependency, it probably never will... Nonetheless here it is. (Can be UniExtracted and run without installation...)

Version 1.2.0 seems 'buggy'; drag and drop cause it to crash.
